Anushka Sharma to be honoured with Dadasaheb Phalke Award
Anushka Sharma along with her brother started their company Clean Slate Films and produced the much-acclaimed ‘NH10’.
She was 25 when she became the youngest producer ever. Besides that, she was known for her commitment to quality and desire to make entertaining cinema and some content-rich films.
Phillauri and Pari
Apart from NH10, their other productions like ‘Phillauri’ and ‘Pari’ proved their ability to dabble with three different genres – thriller, romance and horror with a distinct and differential content pitch for audiences.
Pari, in fact, is all set for a Tamil remake. It also got a Russian release. With this, it has become the first ever female-led film from India to open in the country.

“Pari became a success because of its script and the willingness of a superstar to take a huge risk to back content that was aimed at redefining the horror genre in India. Everyone has taken notice of this gutsy decision. Pari will soon have a Tamil remake. Quality horror stories work in this market and the producers here have loved Pari. The offer on the table is a big one too and only adds to the revenue of Pari. An announcement is expected to happen as soon as the deal is locked. It is a huge success for Anushka,” a source confirmed as reported by Indian Express.
